Okay, I have been having some issues for the past few weeks with my computer and I came to the realization that it was a virus, trojan, not really sure. I typed in my symptoms on google and was lead to a topic that was closed on this site and the person's problems were exactly the same as mine. The expert that gave him advice told him to run Combofix, so I figured I would as well. I know, I KNOW it was bad to do it without an expert helping me along, but I didn't feel like waiting around and eventually losing everything on my computer. Well Combofix didn't hurt my PC at all, but now I have the log from it and I am in no way able to make an understanding of what it is saying.

All in all, I was hoping that a trained professional could help me and let me post my log on here so they could help me read it. Again, I know it was a mistake to use it at my own risk (plus Mcafe wasn't disabling so that was running while Combofix was too and that was a big no no). Though I did use the instructions so that was probably the only smart thing done on my part.

Thanks in advance! And I'm sorry if a topic like this already exists! I'm a complete n00b around here. :thumbsup:

We do not respond to Combofix logs in this particular forum

If you would like to, you can prepare a HJT log following our guide:
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/34773/preparation-guide-for-use-before-using-malware-removal-tools-and-requesting-help/
Then post it in the proper forum:
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/f/22/virus-trojan-spyware-and-malware-removal-logs/

You can mention that you ran Combofix, but do not post the log unless asked
